Re: Model A with T mods or Model T with A mods ??

My scenario: the old model T broke down & was superseded by a newer Model A Ford. The good T body was removed so the chassis could be used as a farm trailer/wagon. Alas two weeks later a garage roof...

Re: Wonder how hot the exhaust to muffler gets

You shouldn't need any sealer if the parts themselves are in good condition. They didn't have a sealer from the factory.

Re: A little help with part ID

After market rear windows. If everything is there as listed in the parts list it has some value, but not high dollar. Put it on eBay and see what you can get.

The tax is levied on the sale not the item.

Re: Gear ratio

I don't think your story is too useful to most new model A owners.They should drive more conservatively and keep the engines going longer.

Re: What is it?
